    Lettuces Growing Guide (Lettuce sometimes bolts/seed prematurely, a condition often caused by dry growing conditions & by the check of transplanting esp. if the roots are broken. Lettuces are ready for gathering as soon as the heart is nicely solid. Once growth begins to push up from the centre, is a sign the plants are beginning to run to seed and should therefore be moved as soon as possible. If it is not possible to use them immediately they can be pulled up completely with roots and placed in a cool, shaded position in vessels of very shallow water. The majority of best modern varieties of cos lettuces are self-folding & need no help by tying. Even so, during spells of dry weather they may not heart up well, and it is a good plan to give a light tying with raffia, soft string, or to use a rubber band although the latter sometimes cut into the leaves rather badly.
